Communicating with the Millennial Generation
Do you teach classes with participants from the “millennial generation” (those born between 1982-2000)? If so, you may want to learn about millennial generation traits and consider adjusting teaching techniques to best communicate with students. Suzanne Minor, M.D., from Florida International University Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine, has published the PowerPoint slides from her presentation at the AAMC Regional Conference on the Southern Group on Educational Affairs on April 21, 2012. The presentation is entitled, “Communicating Effectively with the Millennial Generation Medical Student.“ It summarizes the research in this area and gives communication suggestions based on the research. It also gives references for further reading of the research.
